Briggs exhaust valve

Posted: 13/02/2017 at 14:50

When the engine is pulled over very slowly can you see the exhaust valve move fractionely as if the decompresor is working ok, also is there excessive sideway movement in the valve guide?

Hayter Lawn Mowers

Hello


Hammerite is good so long as the deck is thoroughly clean and dry before application as with any protection used. Also waxoil works very well, either will need to be reapplied every year as abrasives picked up by the blade will damage the coating used.


Hope this is useful.

Does ash enhance the soil?

All ash from rubbish burnt on my allotment is bagged when dry and used around fruit bushes every winter as it is a good source of potash, my father was a gardener all his life and used to swear by it

The part shown is a decompressor to lower the compression for easier starting when pulling the engine over

Buying Seed Potatoes

Posted: 06/09/2016 at 15:10

Rather than order online I prefer to go to local garden centres and see what I am buying, also in spring Wilko have a good selection of early and late varieties at resonable cost.
